When every ounce is crucial.

Designed under the guiding notion that extra weight is the difference between standing atop the podium and being left in the dust, the 2017 Fox 32 Float SC 29 100 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork's innovative design shaves approximately 255g or 15 percent from a similarly spec'd 32 FLOAT Fork. Coined as Step Cast (SC) by FOX due to its stepped lower legs, the new SC Chassis is 10mm narrower than the previous iteration for a ridiculously light fork that maximizes efficiency in cross-country racing scenarios. Its smooth and sensitive ride quality remains unchanged from the previous version thanks to 32mm stanchions and a lighter version of the Fit 4 damper giving riders 3-position adjust (Open, Medium, and Firm) and 22 clicks of low-speed compression damping in Open mode.

The stepped lower legs provide clearance for the disc brake mount, tucking it where the lower fork previously resided. Not only does this stepped lower provide ample clearance for wheel and brake hardware, but it also significantly reduces weight with a hollow lower section that's the result of shortening the upper tube length and raising the magnesium lower assembly. And although the new Step Cast Chassis is 10mm narrower than the previous version, it still accommodates 2.3in tires for plenty of traction and bump compliance on technical courses where wider rubber is warranted.

The Float Air spring remains unchanged, and that's a good thing if you're seeking smooth travel and tunable support with the addition of air volume spacers. Its self-equalizing negative air spring provides a plush, linear feel in the stock configuration of 2 air volume spacers. Adding more (it handles up to 4) increases the fork's progressiveness and reluctance to bottom out on bigger drops and larger trail obstacles. Rounding things out, FOX employs its 15 x 100mm Kabolt thru-axle for increased stiffness and slight weight savings over a comparable quick-release.

  • FOX Racing Shox's lightest cross-country fork to date
  • Step Cast chassis drops girth to shed grams
  • 100mm of XC racing travel
  • Lighter damper allows for targeted adjustment
  • Air spring ramp-up is tunable with extra air volume spacers
  • FOX's Kabolt thru-axle shaves weight while retaining stiffness

Don't even notice it's there...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Fork works perfectly, so far I've only followed the instructions as far as setup but it works great... Only regret is I wish I'd purchased the remote as I like to stand and climb and there's some bob when doing this. Reaching for the lever on the fork isn't too convenient. Can't seem to find the remote now, guess I need to be patient.

Incredible!

Narrower; significantly lighter, and stiffer? Yup.

I was rather concerned about how this fork would ride after seeing it on the bike I was demoing, but it turned out to not only shatter expectations, it put all concerns of flex to rest rather quickly.

Even after dropper 3/4 pound compared to the standard Float 29, there was zero noticeable sacrifice in performance. Fox claims that the Step Cast forks are stiffer than the standard float, and I would be inclined to believe them.

If you are looking for the ultimate XC race fork, look no further!

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with me directly.

This fork is available with remote lockout?

You can purchase the remote lever and fork top cap hardware from Fox in order to convert to a remote. I would be more than happy to get something like this setup for you.

Are the decals removable? Not a big fan of the orange myself.

The decals can be removed; the Heritage decal kit doesn't fit perfectly, so you might just want to run it blank until there is a step-cast specific kit.
